How to Export a Symantec Endpoint Policy
First, open up the server containing the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager.
Once logged in, navigate to Clients. Next, select the policy to be exported. In the example shown, I want to export SEP VDI 12.1. Right-click on the policy and select Export Communication Settings.
A new menu will appear, prompting you to save the file to a location. By default, the file name will export as the parent-policy_policy-name_sylink.xml. In my case, this exports as My Company_SEP VDI 12.1_sylink.xml.
Once the export has completed, a window will appear and display: Communications settings file has been exported successfully!
